I Don't Feel So Good



Is that not pathetic! Don't you just want to tell that person to crawl back into bed and hide for the next couple of days!   Don't you feel sooo sorry for me!

Actually, I'm feeling better.  Day three of a head cold - and it's never a pretty sight.  Especially when the picture is taken at 5:30 am just minutes after being coughed awake.  I managed to stagger to the computer - I have my priorities! - and wrapped up in Lloyd's 'special' blanket.  I'm going to go now and shower and dress and get ready to ride herd on a particularly active one year old, who has already had this cold.  In face, I think I got it from him, his siblings, and/or cousins, all of whom I interacted with this past weekend.

I have all afternoon to rest and recuperate.  Got to.  Have a date with Mickey tomorrow, and on Monday or Tuesday (I can't think straight right now or I'd know the exact day) I'm off to Lacombe to take care of Jenny's five boys while she and Anders get away for a much needed kid free break.

So I haven't felt much like blogging these past few days.  I'll be back in a day or so.

You look dreadful...and I mean that in the nicest way. You look even worse than Rick thinks he feels. I'm sorry. I wish you didn't have to care for little ones. That exhausts me even when I'm in tip top shape. Hope you feel better soon. You look dreadful!

Those little ones do enjoy sharing their germs with us. How can we resist their hugs and kisses. My youngest grandson recently learned how to blow kisses. So cute...maybe less germs but I still get plenty of the other too. Take care and rest when you can you do have some busy days ahead of you.

You poor thing. You look like you feel miserable. I hope this bug is out of your system soon. Germs abound this time of year. With any luck, you'll be feeling good enough to watch the little ones in a couple days. REST. Drink plenty of fluids. Take care.

Well you certainly look better than I do when I have a cold. It's really a disaster. Hate 'em. Here's hoping your healthy for tomorrow.
